MOUNT UPSirs:Congratulations to SI for the wonderfully written article on Rick Mount of Lebanon, Ind. (Brighit Star in Indiana, Feb. 14). It goes to prove once more that Indiana produces the best players in the nation. Just consider. The NBA could start a complete team with nothing but Indianans: Clyde Lovellette at center, Terry Dischinger and Ron Bonham at forward, Oscar Robertson and Dick Barnett at guard. Throw in the Van Arsdale twins, Bobby Leonard and others as reserves, and they could challenge any NBA club.

With the proposed increase in racing days, harness racing at night and Sunday racing, the average horseplayer is going to have only a limited time available in which to come up with scratch for the track.

Joe Jares's description of the Texas Western College buildings (Defense by a Coyote Caller, Feb. 7) says that they are southwestern in style and that some resemble the Alamo. This is not a correct description.

TWC buildings (all of them) are authentic Tibetan, and have been described as the only true examples of this type of architecture in the U.S. This style was used to blend the buildings into their mountain campus setting. The combination of mountains, extremely attractive buildings, grass and trees makes the school area one of the most looked-at tourist attractions in Texas. The Sun Bowl football stadium, located between two mountains on the campus, also has some Tibetan characteristics.

All new buildings, including a $3 million science building now under construction, follow the same design. There is no hodgepodge of contrasting building styles as exists on the main University of Texas campus in Austin.

The only building that nobody likes anymore is the 5,000-seat field house (Tibetan). It is about 6,000 seats too small.
